About Lodge Vet Hospital

Lodge Veterinary HospitalLodge Veterinary Hospital (LVH) was established by veterinary surgeon, John Corrigan, in 2006. It is a fully accredited small animal hospital, dedicated solely to companion animal healthcare.

Our premises are approved by the Veterinary Council of Ireland and adhere to the highest standards for Companion Animal Medicine and Surgery. In addition to meeting these standards, we continually strive to exceed them through training and constant re-investment in our surgery.

Our veterinarians undergo regular professional training and development to keep up to date with the ever-changing world of veterinary medicine. We never stop trying to provide the highest level of pet care and client service possible.

Our Approach

We emphasise preventative medicine and good pet healthcare, vaccination against fatal diseases, worming and parasite control, and good dietary and lifestyle management.

The family pet is an important family member with access to its own health insurance plan! As vets and pet owners ourselves, we understand more than most the strong emotional attachment that bonds us to our pets. With this in mind, we aim to deliver the very best in pet healthcare.

The best advice that we can give is simple. A healthy diet, good exercise levels and a happy environment lead to a happy, healthy pet and a happy pet owner. At LVH, we would only be delighted to help make this happen.
